A working adventure
    #4171944 - 05/13/05 07:27 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

My company has picked up a contract to do some work in Southern Cal.  Its a job that has gotten fucked up and the developer is losing something like 2 million dollars a month until it gets fixed.  So we are going to go do the fixes.  I will be leaving Vegas Sunday morning, driving my big rig to So Cal, and spending every day for the next 2 weeks working 12 hour days.  The company has a hotel room booked for me (Holiday Inn Express, not the best but not too bad either) and I get $30 cash a day to feed myself (already got the first weeks $210 worth in my pocket).

Its going to be a lot of work but I'm used to 12 hour days anyway.  I'll just have no days off for the next 2 weeks.  I think it will be kinda fun anyway.  I'm always up for an adventure.  I almost feel like I am going on a vacation, I just have to work while I'm there! :tongue:

The biggest bitch is that I will have Shroomery withdrawls as I sit in my hotel room each night! :sad:  I have no laptop and I'll be too fucking lazy after that much work to hunt down a public internet access terminal.  Oh well, somehow I think I'll live. :smirk:  I plan on taking my camera so I'll probably post some pics and 'trip' reports when I return.

Wish me luck! :thumbup:

I already do a lot of 12 hour days so I'm used to it.  Sometimes I work even longer (I've done as much as 16 in a day).  But I have my weekends off.  It will be hard to go 2 weeks without a break!  But the money will be really good! :thumbup:
